Origen is a Spanish-based team that was founded by xPeke to compete in the League Championship Series.

History

Origen was initially founded by xPeke in December 2014 after he departed Fnatic to found his own team. Jungler Amazing (of Team SoloMid), support Mithy (formerly of Lemondogs, and rookie AD carry Niels joined xPeke as he played mid lane. xPeke's former Fnatic teammate sOAZ joined shortly thereafter to play top lane. Origen established a base and gaming house in Tenerife in the Canary Islands of Spain.

2015 Season

Origen qualified for the EUCS Spring Qualifier via the Challenger Ladder, where they beat Millenium Spirit in their bracket final, securing their qualification to the EUCS Spring Season. Origen were unbeaten until their penultimate game of the split, against LowLandLions.White, and despite dropping that one game easily secured first place in the regular season. Origen also placed highly in tournaments throughout this period, winning the ESL MWC Challenge and Gamers Assembly 2015. The Spring Playoffs saw Origen beat Reason Gaming in the semifinals 2-1 and then going on to sweep Copenhagen Wolves Academy (the team formerly known as LowLandLions.White) in the final to win the tournament and secure automatic qualification to the LCS Summer Season. Notably, their last game against CW Academy ended on a Zed backdoor by xPeke reminiscent of his famous backdoor at IEM Katowice in 2013, and the team would become known for its backdoor plays to win games.

Throughout the EU LCS Summer Season, Origen jostled for 2nd position with H2k-Gaming, while Fnatic sat far ahead in an undefeated 1st place throughout. Impressive individual performances helped the team ultimately secure that 2nd place regular season finish, and with it a bye past the Summer Playoffs quarterfinal round. In the semifinals, Origen faced off against rivals H2k and won 3-1; perhaps even more impressively, they took two games off Fnatic in the finals despite ultimately losing the series. Their second-place overall finish earned Origen 90 Championship Points, enough for the second seed in the 2015 Season Europe Regional Finals. There, they beat Team ROCCAT in a 3-2 series and then Unicorns of Love in an easy 3-0 and successfully qualified for the 2015 World Championship, where they would play as Europe's #3 seed. Shortly after their qualification, LeDuck decided to leave his role of head coach. He was replaced by analyst Hermit.

At the 2015 World Championship, Origen were drawn into Group D along with Team SoloMid, KT Rolster, and LGD Gaming. Origen went 3-0 in the 1st week of the round robin and ended the group with a 4-2 record, meaning they would advance to the knockout stage of the tournament. Origen won their quarterfinal series 3-1 against the Flash Wolves, becoming the first Western team to win a best-of-five at a World Championship, but were later knocked out by SK Telecom T1, the eventual champions, in the semifinals. Origen, along with fellow semifinalists Fnatic, placed higher than any Western team at Worlds since 2012.

2016 Season

Pre-Season

After rumors that xPeke would retire from competitive play, Origen announced a six-man roster for the 2016 season, including former Unicorns of Love mid laner PowerOfEvil and xPeke as co-mid laners. Head coach Hermit also left the team. Their new roster, with PowerOfEvil starting in every game, debuted at IEM San Jose, where after a quarterfinal bye they swept Team SoloMid and Counter Logic Gaming to win the tournament. Not only was it Origen's first international tournament victory, but it was also first time a European team won a major event with a Korean team present since Gambit Gaming's victory at IEM Season VII Katowice, a year and a half beforehand.

Origen's performance at IEM San Jose resulted in their qualification to the IEM World Championship. At the tournament, they first lost to Royal Never Give Up in the upper bracket of their group before then losing to Team SoloMid in the lower bracket, resulting in the team's elimination from the tournament.

EU LCS Spring Split

Although xPeke and PowerOfEvil continued to ostensibly be co-midlaners, PowerOfEvil played all but three games throughout the spring split of the LCS. After a rocky start, Origen climbed to fifth place at 11-7 and secured a berth in the spring playoffs. There, Origen defeated Unicorns of Love and H2k Gaming before falling to G2 Esports in their second straight finals loss.

EU LCS Summer Split

Despite Origen's relative success in the spring, AD carry Niels (since renamed to Zven) and support Mithy departed for G2 Esports, citing the team's stressful environment throughout the split.[1] Origen signed LCS veteran FORG1VEN to AD carry along with G2's former support Hybrid.

Before the summer 2016 split, the EU LCS reorganized into a round-robin Best-of-Two format. Origen struggled to progress with its new roster, picking up only two series wins the entire split and staying in relegation territory throughout. Adding to the team's problems, FORG1VEN departed the team after three weeks and left Origen without an AD carry. As their substitute mid laner, xPeke stepped in to the AD carry role for much of the remainder of the season. He was briefly replaced by Lithuanian rookie Toaster, but xPeke moved back to the starting position only ten days later. Origen ended in ninth place with a 2-8-8 series record, cementing their unenviable berth in the upcoming Promotion Tournament.

In a close series in the Promotion Tournament, Origen defeated Misfits 3-2 to retain their LCS position.

2017 Season

Pre-Season

Following the disastrous summer split of 2016, all of Origen's players left the organization except xPeke, who moved back to a substitute mid position. Origen signed top laner Satorius of the Challenger Series Epsilon eSports, jungler Wisdom and support Hiiva of Misfits, LCS veteran Tabzz as AD carry, and rookie korean mid laner NaeHyun to round out its new roster.

EU LCS Spring Split

The EU LCS again reorganized prior to the spring split, and Origen was selected to be in Group B along with H2k Gaming, Unicorns of Love, Splyce, and Team Vitality.
